At long last, my review of THE 'DENPA' MEN 3

Unfortunately, you can't read it here. Instead, you have to head over to

Don't worry, this doesn't mean all of my reviews are going to appear on GameCritics rather than here from now on. I wrote this particular review for a site that isn't my own because Senior Editor Brad Gallaway, who has been a Twitter friend of mine for ages now, asked me to write it.

OK, so he also asked me to write a review of Fantasy Life, so at least one more of my reviews will be published there rather than here, but that's likely to be the extent of it. I think.

Anyway, if you're at all curious as to how I felt about THE "DENPA" MEN 3 after spending more than 40 hours with it, check out at your convenience.

Oh, and please share your feelings on this 3DS RPG in the comments section below--should you be one of the five or six people outside of Japan who've actually played it, I mean.

Well, I can't say I ever made it further than the second or third boss in the ORIGINAL game. I certainly haven't played any others. But I DID read your review. Well done, Bryan! It's nice to see your game-realted writing getting some play on other sites! said...

Thanks, Justin! I wouldn't expect to see my writing appear in too many other places, but you may see it here and there from time to time moving forward :)

Denpa, Denpa Men! You'd rather not... play Denpa Men!

Sorry, the title always makes me think of that song for some reason. Anyway, it sounds like the game suffers from the same overstuffing as a lot of modern sandbox games. There's so much to do that nobody bothers to spend any time with the core gameplay, least of all the developers. said...

Hey there, Jess! Yep, this one's stuffed, and a bit too stuffed. I wish it would've been a bit more streamlined, like the original.
